Linda Barrass

Remembered with love, my great uncle Alfred who courageously gave his life for others. Never forgotten and so proud. God bless you ♥️ They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them.
